4:21am
happy travels today, everybody. a controversial statement by a rising star in the republican party grabbed headlines this week. florida senator marco rubio who is a practicing catholic tried to walk the line between science and faith-based creationism. here's what he told gq. at the end of the day i think there are multiple theories and this i think this is what people should teach them all. i'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. this weekend i asked famed television scientist bill nye how old he thinks the earth is? >> 4 1/2, 4.5, 4 billion years old. so there are certain elements that were created in exploding
4:22am
stars, especially the big bang, and we rely on those elements for our everyday life in order to have the quality of life we have. but the idea is certain elements change from one element to another. the verb is they transmute and the classic is our good friend australian thee yum becomes row bit yum. and you can look at this ratio. the half lisle is 48.8 billion years. this is measured in laboratories. sometimes they will observe it for 15 years to get it exactly right. then you work backward to the age of the rocks. let me say about mr. rubio's comment, you stop there about opposing theories but he went on to claim that there's no connection between our scientific understanding of the age of the earth and the
4:23am
economy. >> let me direct you there. let me disript you there and read you that quote because this was another part of his answer to gk saying that's a dispute among theologans and it has to do with with the economic comment or the united states. i think the age of the universe has zero to do with hour our economy is going to grow. what do you make of this. >> the reason we have smartphones and televisions is we're able to talk on opposite sides of the content. the classic thing for me is smoke detectors. we understand the nuclear reactions. without that deep understanding we wouldn't have everything that you can touch and see in our viern. so this claim that has nothing
4:24am
to do with the economy is just wrong. i'm not going after anybody's religion. that's not it. just the earth is not six or 10,000 years old. that's not. and furthermore, we rely on this -- on these discoveries for our everyday life, especially here in the developed world. >> bill nye's opinion there. one trucker is lucky to be alive. take a look. that truck is dangling over a highway overpass. we will tell you what happened. wow. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios
4:25am
